Edna McClain, 76
Edna Lorriane McClain, aged 76 of Campbell, passed away peacefully on January 16, 2018. Edna was born September 23, 1941, in San Jose, California, the daughter of Verl and Ida Belle Watkins.
After graduating from high school Edna McClain would meet the love of her life. On February 10, 1962 Edna married Daniel William McClain, who she met at a local roller skating rink. Shortly after being married, they moved to the Philippines, for several years, where her husband Daniel McClain was stationed with the navy. Being a navy wife allowed Edna to travel and live in many places.
Edna thoroughly enjoyed being at home with her four children and raising poodles while living in the east coast. After her husband retired from the navy, they moved the family to California in the mid-1970s. Thereafter Edna worked in the drug store industry for 30 years.
She sang in the church choir, was an avid reader and enjoyed being with her children and grandchildren. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife and mother.
God was her guiding light and now rests in His presence.
Besides eleven grandchildren, Mrs. Edna McClain is survived by her four children, Tammy Storey, Jule Cena, Melody Bell, Daniel McClain Jr. and sister, Beth Shanks and brother Butch Watkins.
